Default Is Mayweather an ATG?

I mean, he's a multi-division world champion, he's only been down ONCE in his career, he's 43-0. What more does he have to do?

Most will probably say yes, I'm not so sure. He has never been in a FOTY, that's not too good. He has not fought anyone for years who was a legit threat. I'd say HOF material.

He's also been at the top of the p4p rankings for god knows how many years. Whether you love him or you hate him, he is an ATG.

It's the ultimate stupidity to say no.

Of course he is.

FOTY usually involve back-and-forth fights and/or are very competitive. Floyd's not involved in those type of fights because he's better than his opponents by a wide margin. As such, his fights tend to be one-sided. That's not his fault.

He is an ATG. How high on the list is debatable, but clearly beneath top 10.

Nah, I don't buy that, he picks his fights well, that's all.

So did the second best heavyweight of all time, to hold on to a title that was worth virtually nothing in the end, yet you wouldn't question him as an ATG. Give me a well structured argument to why Mayweather isn't an ATG.

Money dont play that rockem sockem robot shit and that's mostly what foty is all about. However he has been named fighter of the year several times. The man is an ATG and that can't be denied.

Easy. Since 140 he has fought beatable opposition and retired while 147 was steaming hot. He has beat no one that has not been beaten better.

Of course not. A Hall of Famer maybe, but an ATG?
